I got this as a Christmas gift from my girlfriend last Christmas because I always wanted to learn how to fly. I finally got around to using the certificate last weekend and I had an amazing time. The pilot (Eric) was super friendly and explained everything I would be doing very well. My girlfriend (who was sitting in the back of the plane) and I both had a great time and I'm shocked at how fast the whole experience seemed to go. I will definately do this again!
The experience was spectacular. The instructor was fantastic. Better than I ever expected.
This was the coolest christmas present ever. I have no experience flying or with air craft so I was really excited to go. I brought my sister along to ride with us too! Our instructor was fun and knowledgeable. I remember when i said to him. This is going to be fun, he responded. 'Are you kidding. This is going to be Radical fun!' And he was right. I Had such an adrenaline rush that after that hour flight I went home and felt like i ran a marathon. I would definatly recommend this to someone who wants to jump right in to a hands on experience.
It was a great experience. I had done it before some where else, no comparison. This time I had the chance to take off and had control of the plane most of the flight. Dream come true. Eric was my instructor. Great guy. I'll be doing it again that's for sure. Thanks
Great experience. My instructor was very nice, and casual. Made me feel very welcome there, and very comfortable. The flight was wonderful. I learned about all of the different controls, and even got to take control of the plane for a while. I would highly recommend this to anyone because it was fun, and my instructor went out of his way to make sure it was a great time.
Really enjoyed, great instructions and FUN FUN FUN...
This was a surprise planned for my Dad. (Father's Day) And my dad was speechless after this whole experience, I have never seen him so happy, he came out gave a hug to instructor (Dan).
Special thanks to Dan and Craig they made it special. My dad/mom are not so fluent in English but still Dan was amazing in understanding them.
No amount of money could compensate the joy they brought to my parents. Thanks a lot.
Amazing !!!! Doing it again for sure!
Awesome! Awesome! It really surpassed my expectations.The flight instructor and staff at certified flyers was very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Daniel, my instructor was very patience and allowed me to be in control of the aircraft explaining some Technics and equipment functionality. Thank you!!!!!
I got a phone call few days before my reservation on May 11 that due to weather conditions my appointment is postponed to another day whenever im available so i chose it to be one week later and so it was. Even thou the weather was cloudy the experience was a sunshine! The instructor (Daniel) was 11 out of 10 in all aspects. I really dont have words to explain how pleased i am and overall this experience definitely out worth the price!
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. The young man who flew with my son couldn't have been better hand-picked for the experience if we tried. The entire package was stellar from start to finish. Thank you so much.
I bought this package for my husband for our one year wedding anniversary and it was a complete success. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, there was a huge smile on both of our faces. The staff at Certified Flyers is visibly passionate about what they do. They really took the time to explain everything to us and make us feel comfortable (I am actually quite terrified of flying). Frank, our instructor, knew what he was talking about and really let my husband take the wheel. Instead of being impatient and taking over when my husband struggled, he talked him through it and helped him understand how to maneuver in the right way. Overall great experience that left my husband wanting to pursue his pilot license! Thank you !
Surprised my husband with a flight lesson for his 40th Bday. The instructor was very nice, patient and supportive. I was a guest on the flight. Was a bit disappointed when we landed again 35 min after take off. I had read the in air time would be 60 min, didn't think it included landing and exit.
Know my husband was nervous, maybe thats what cut the in air time short. All is all a great experience but wished it would have been longer.
It was great. I would do it again some time soon.
I went on the flight lesson on Saturday and it was fantastic! Nick was very thorough in explaining all aspects of flight training. A very enjoyable experience and I recommend to any and everyone! My dad was so jealous, he is now requesting I buy HIM flight lesson tickets! Thank you, XPERIENCE DAYS!
I am 15 and have recently gone on this experience. It was exelent. I had a very nice and insightful instructor and the customer service was exellent. He allowed me to taxi the plane (which took some getting used to) and takeoff. The veiw was stunning. I saw some mountain ranges, a large lake, the jets training facility, and several other cool and interesting sights. Overall five out of five experience... great time!!!!
What an awesome experience! My instructor, Brian explained the aerodynamics of flying and the instruments inside the cockpit in such a manner that made me comfortable once I took control of the plane. The experience for this first time flyer was a memorable one that I want to experience again. Best gift I've received maybe ever...
I had an absolutely great time!!! Our instructor Steve was an absolute pleasure. He added tremendously to our experience. His warm demeanor coupled with his extensive knowledge and experience put us right at ease. The breathtaking views and gorgeous weather made our adventure one we will experience over and over again. We will be back!! Thank you to Steve, Certified Flyers and Xperience Days for making it possible.
Awesome experience! Great service and value.
It was a very good experience.
This flight lesson was a birthday gift, and it really over-achieved on the expectations that I had for it. The instructor was very, experienced & knowledge-able, and initially I only expected to control the flight for a short time, but outside or take-off / landing, I flew the entire session, which was about 60+ minutes... It gave me a real appreciation for flying, and I would absolutely do it again.
Hi, i took my first flight lesson as a suprise Birthday gift on 7-6-12. Aside from the gift in itself being awesome the lesson itself was great! It was a very relaxed mood and the instructor was very affable although serious about the task. Prior to the flight we were briefed on what to expect and what we were going to do. Next I we walked through the flight check and everything was explained in a very comprehensive and understandable manner. We had a beautiful day of weather adding to the enjoyment of the lesson. All along I felt totally confident that I had absolute immediate support to any concern or issue that could've come up. I took the controls for takeoff and before you knew it we were airborne! As we flew our instructor made it a point to communicate with us constantly assuring us that he was maintaining an on going status check of all aspects of the lesson including our experience. I totally enjoyed the sensory overload of all of these strange sensations of flight in a small Cessna and we ascended, banked, viewed the lay of the land and descended for a pin point perfect landing. Overall I give the lesson and experience an A rating and am inspired to return. Thanks again for making my birthday that much more exciting of an experience!
Chris took my girlfriend and I out on our flight and what a pleasure it was. He explained how everything in the aircraft worked and gave me plenty of control once we were up in the air. We also got to fly over my house which was pretty cool.I definitely recommend this to anybody, regardless of whether they want to one day be a pilot or not.
I was both surprised and excited that I could complete the experience. Adam was a great instructor and made the experience relaxing and enjoyable even on a windy day!
Awesome time, a great instructor who was very nice and let me do most of the work, flexible flightplans. I'd absolutely do it again and would recommend it to anyone interested in flying.
The lesson was very good. I had a good time, will do it again.
I purchased the experience as a surprise gift for my husband's 50 b'day. He does not get easily impressed. But this was absolutely amazing. The day was picture perfect. The plane was (almost) in mint condition (we used SR22). Our instructor was young and friendly. My husband, who for most of his life has been a car racing fan, suddenly got a taste of flying. He indeed felt in control. Once all was done, he couldn't stop talking about it and sharing his experience with friends and relatives, which was very unusual for him. The fact that we live in 15 mins driving distance from the airport made this even better. Overall, I very highly recommend this as a gift.
The weather did not cooperate on the initial weekend I made the appointment for. However, it was very easy to reschedule for the next week. I was very excited and nervous to try my hand at flying. Having an instructor that was an expert and professional calmed my nerves. He was also nice and friendly. I had a great time controlling the plane. My fiancee was there to watch and ride along. I think that is one of the best parts. It would have been nice to have gotten a chance to fly over the clouds or swing closer to the Tapanzee bridge, but the clear views were pretty awesome already. We also had a really smooth landing.
Excellent experience. Chris, the instructor, was extremely thorough in explaining all the steps. Beautiful day. Lots of fun.
Experience was great. My teacher was very knowlegable sand friendly. I would recommend for sure.
Not sure how exciting/exhilarating was the first flight for the Wright brothers, I had a great time sitting at the pilot seat for the first time and able to fly. It was a dream come true. My instructor, Chris, was a great guy and gave me enough time to settle down and experience the flight. Provided an insight into how pilot's go about their routine. Explained each of his actions before and helped me understand the plane better. I'd have liked to fly over my neighborhood and may be a little more info on the mechanics of flight and what I can do to further to indulge myself in more flying. But I'm not complaining. Had a great time, thanks Chris.
I had a great time with my lesson, I did not expect that I was going to take control of the plane as much as I did from assisting with the takeoff and flying and also the landing, I did not know I was going to do all these things, It was memorable spell shout out to Drew my pilot on that that very knowledgeable, cool and friendly communicated effectively and very supportive. I hope I can do it again.
This wasn't some lame sit-next-to-a-pilot experience. I actually flew the plane, including taxi, take off, hard bank turns and more.
The Flight Lesson was amazing. The people at Morristown were great & our instructor Drew was awesome. He made us very comfortable and we learned alot. I was just a passenger, but my boyfriend who was the one taking the flight lesson loved it.
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend's 27th birthday this past weekend, since he's wanted to fly ever since he was little. I surprised him with it as we were driving to the Morristown airport, and he was THRILLED! The instructor at Certified Flyers was very thorough and professional, we had an amazing flight, and I loved that I was able to share the experience as a passenger! My boyfriend was all smiles the entire time AND the entire weekend after. Completely worth every penny, and we would do it again in a heartbeat!
A wonderful experience. The instructor was interesting and informative. The flying was great.
The staff at Certified Flyers were professional and courteous. The flight instructor, Matt, was great, calm and informative. The equipment was is excellent condition. Thank you for a memorable experience.
Fabulous experience! It was a birthday present from the hubby. The instructor, Steve, was informative, gentleman, patient and really knowledgable. The day was perfect, a real 10. We went west over Lake Hopatcong and near the Delaware River, beautiful! It fulfilled the dream to pilot, I see how one could hooked!
I had an awesome time. Matt was a great instructor and I really felt like a pilot!
I got this gift as a birthday present and to be honest I was not that excited. But after actually flying it was a great experience and something totally different than anything I have ever done. It was definitely worth it and makes a great gift. The employees are extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
Present for bf for birthday. He loved it, was very excited at the idea of flying and this did not fail to deliver. We learned how to check the plane and then we were off! Great experience, with professionals, and I loved that I could also be in the plane with him!
I have been dating my boyfriend for a little over a year and I was having a hard time coming up with a unique 24th birthday gift for him. I ended up choosing this Flight Lesson after stumbling upon XperienceDays on Google. My boyfriend absolutely LOVED it and said it was the best gift he ever got. I wouldn't even say he's INTO airplanes, but he's loves adventures and prefers experiences over material things. I would definitely recommend this Flight Lesson!! Amazing views, everything you could ask for. I get very nervous when I fly, but our instructor, Brian, made us feel very comfortable and safe. He answered every question I had and was very knowledgeable about airplanes. He felt more like a friend than an 'instructor.' Morristown has a very friendly staff, overall. Helpful advice: We went in August and it was very very hot since the airplane doesn't have AC, so dress according to the weather and make sure you're comfortable. If you are claustrophobic, the plane is VERY small! Smaller than a car! So if you feel uncomfortable in confined spaces (especially if you are a guest and not the 'pilot' you will be sitting in the back seat) this experience might not be for you. If you get motion sickness, this experience also might not be for you. Apparently it's not unusual for people to throw up due to turns and other movements of the plane.
I was initially surprised when my girlfriend got me a flying lesson for my birthday a few months back. However I can say that I am very glad she did. Yesterday was a great, memorable experience. The 20-25 minutes on the ground were quick but informative and the next thing I knew, I was pulling back on the wheel, taking the plane off the ground. It was fantastic to fly a plane, to be the person who is controlling an aircraft 3,500 feet off the ground. Amazing.
My husband was excited from the second he received his (nicely presented) Xperience Days gift card as a birthday present. Peter at Certified Flyers II was friendly and welcoming when we arrived, and after, when we requested more training literature. Steve our pilot was professional, personable and encouraging (I got to tag along for the airplane ride!). Bob was comfortable enough to do a large part of the 'driving' and received a thorough lesson. Great views of the NY skyline, NJ lakes and towns. Lots of friendly 'chatter' on the headsets from the air traffic controllers kept things interesting too. Bob got to experience a life-long dream of flying and it could not have been a better day. A Great Gift!
My children gave me the flight lesson as a Father's Day gift. It was money well spent. It definitely wasn't your average Father's Day present. Peter, the manager at Certified Flyer, and Brian, the pilot, were just fantastic people, and made the day very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Received this as a birthday gift from a very intuitive girlfriend who found the perfect gift for a guy with a child like love of airplaning. The Xperience was all I hoped for and much more. Literally controlling the aircraft while listening to the approach and landing communications of nearby Newark Airport. The instructor was more than capable, knowledgeable, and friendly.
This was a gift from my wife to-be and I did not know what I was going to do that day until I arrived at the airport. It was an incredible experience. Never before had I thought that I would do such a thing. Take-off was awesome. Could not perform the 0-G move myself, I got too giddy when the instructor showed it to me once. But it was great fun.
I got this gift for my boyfriends birthday. He loved it and had so much fun flying. The instructors are great, knowledgable, and allow you as the student to feel comfortable and confident. I recommend this experience to anyone who's looking for a memorable gift!
This was truly an unbelievable experience, perfect for an anniversary or celebratory event. After a brief tutorial my girlfriend took off, flew the plane for over an hour, and landed! What an experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new adventure.
Very satisfied. The instruction was good, and it was easy to get the feel of the plane after flying a few minutes. Hope to do it again.
My boyfriend is obsessed with planes so I bought this flight lesson for him as a birthday present. It was wonderful! Our pilot Steve did a great job explaining how everything worked and allowed my boyfriend to maneuver the plane around once it was in the air. Thanks Xperience Days!
I bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend. It was a great experience for both of us and a fantastic gift idea. The instructor was fun, informative and very personable. He let my boyfriend do everything, including take off. It was a really exciting experience and I can't wait to give it to my dad for Father's Day this year. I'm sure he will love it just as much as we did. Also, the Xperience Days people were very knowledgeable and friendly on the phone. They were extremely patient and helpful and I will definitely give Xperience Days again in the future.
Wow! What a great experience! I bought my girlfriend a lesson for Valentine's Day and we couldn't have had a better day. The instructors were so much fun and they made our day perfect. I would recomend every try it at least once, we will be back.
It was the coolest thing in my life, thanks.
It was an AMAZING experience... Everyone was very accomadating and friendly..... The instructor, Brian was very nice and easy to understand.... He allowed Marios to really fly the plane himself... we both enjoyed it as the pilot and passenger.
Got this for my boyfriend for our 1st anniversary. Needless to say, seeing his reaction from opening the package to the day he took off and flew the plane's priceless!!! Worth every penny! I would highly recommend it to anybody seeking a once in a lifetime experience. The people at Certified Flyers were very accommodating and professional! Looking forward to trying out other exciting adventures thru XperienceDays!
It was an awesome gift for my dad for christmas. My dad has worked for a company that deals with the airline industry his whole life and he had never flown a plane until now. The instructor let him full fly the plane with little help for 90% of the time including take off! My dad loved it. Wants to go back. Great Value. Great Gift. Great Experience.
This was a gift for my boyfriend for his Bday. It was a GREAT EXPERIENCE to share with your loved one. My boyfriend actually said that I made one of his dreams come true. The pilot and people from the airport were very friendly and all the questions my boyfriend had, they answered. My boyfriend had control of the plane for most of the time except take off and landing. It was a perfect gift!! Don't think it twice, it is totally worth it!!!!!!!!!!
I received this certificate as a Christmas present from my twin sister and I have to say, it is one of the best gifts if have ever received. My experience was amazing! The instructor was excellent. I will definitely be visiting you guys again and will recommend you guys to friends and family. Thank you for a great time.
I purchased this package for my boyfriends’ birthday. He was so amazed by the flight that he is still thanking me for it. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this for anyone that enjoys life as there is no other way to experience it. I would like to thank the pilot for being so liberal with us. The trip would not have been the same without him. Thank you
This was a birthday gift from my boyfriend. The flying instructor was absolutely great and friendly! I would certainly recommend this to any of my friends!' Specially if someone wants to propose this will work for sure. This is once in a life time experience and from the GIFT box from Xperience days to the people at the airport simply fantastic. Never had a better day like this one.
This was a birthday gift for my boyfriend. He loved the gift so much that he could not stop smiling and kissing me :D ! The flying instructor was absolutely great and friendly! I would certainly recommend this to any of my friends!
The flight training was amazing and the team at Morritown Airport were fantastic. I flew for all but the takeoff and landing and would absolutely recommend the experience!
This was a great experience and provided good value. Would do it again.
If you have the possibility to take this flight lesson you will be amazed. THIS WAS A GIFT OF MY GIRLFRIEND FOR MY BDAY. Girls I can tell you your BF will love it and love you! It was a very good experience and I only can recommend it to everybody. Not only that the Experience team was helpful in finding the directions from Manhattan to the Airport in advance the people at the airport were so nice to actually pick us up from the train station. The flight itself was amazing. I thought I would only be able to fly the plane for like a couple of seconds. After the take off I took complete control over the plane and the instructor was very helpful in explaining every detail about the handling of the Cessna. I would have never thought to actually fly this plane for an hour. If it wasn't so windy I would have been more involved in the take off and landing. AMAZING!!!!
Looking down the runway, engine screaming, brakes off, rolling faster and faster, rotate stick, and i'm flying, I'M flying, not the instructor. This was a fantastic experience. Exciting, fun, adventurous. Definitly a must do for anyone who ever had an inkling to try there hand at piloting a plane.
